Hi..Welcome to The Barn, Any Beech front by the jetties is good, you can Try down by the inlet, there is a small beech down there where the ocean meets the bay, go when the tides changeing,get there early!..it gets crowded fast. Go to red Dog Bait shop, hes a great guy and he`ll give ya some good advice, his place is on 43rd street down by Maries seafood. By the bridge on the Avalon side is good...Great place, I`ve been going to SIC since I was born, family there, then I married a woman whos whole family has houses there..woo hoo...lucky me. Good luck to ya..have a safe summer

Thanks for the reply. Does Townsends get crowded, I know wasn't that bad not to long ago.From what it sounds like it's changing constantly.My folks used to have a house there years ago, so I'm some-what familiar with the area. I only know of Gibson's B/T shop, and I don't even know if that's there anymore. Good luck and catch 'em up

Ocean, welcome. Townsends is a fairly small access point and does get very crowded. Don't overlook whale beach in strathmere. All of those groins hold some fish ;)
You will find kingfish in the surf most of the summer, with NOW being the peak time. There will be some blues and stripers left around a couple of more weeks as well, until the crowds get into the water and the temp comes up.
Look around the ICW for access points as well as the birdges where people are fishing. IN the evening, night and very very early AM you an catch some nice fish back there all summer long. Just forget it in the daytime, too much traffic disturbing everything.
Good luck and have a great summer.

Thanks for the reply guys. Hopefully, I get some time this weekend to look around and try some spots. Good luck and catch 'em up.

If you fish the inlet, use light tackle. Sometimes the water moves real fast in there and there tends to be alot of grass/weeds. I've found the lighter tackle works best. Bucktails w/ plastic is good to have with you. Usually some small blues in the area and if bottom fishing maybe a flounder or two.

Yea..light tackle is right at the inlet..I fished it Sat. morn., and the grass is starting up pretty good, got skunked that day, water temp was like bath water even on the ocean side early am...I`ll keep tryin!

What street will you be on in SI? That way we can give you some spots to walk to.
About every two blocks there are jettys. Check both sides. One side will usually have cleaner water. If you have two rods one should have a baitrunner reel if possible. I usually throw out the rod with the baitrunner with a hunk of clam. Then I try and catch kingfish with the other. If I get a kingfish I cut the head off and put that on instead of the clam. Gibsons has kingfish rigs with floats (I've done the best with the red floats) buy some bloodworms and cut them into small pieces and you should have some kingfish soon.
